Check all the bulb sockets on the tail light fuse circuit for loose or frayed wire connections.

Just check the fuse box for busted fuses. They are properly labelled as headlights, park lights, etc..
Also check the wirings for short circuited lines. Further-
more check the bulbs, if these are still ok.

My 2002 ford excort will not shift out of park unless you use the shift override button. The fuse for this circuit is good.


Are your brake lights working? A common cause of this problem is the brake lamp switch being disconnected or having a bad switch. One problem that I have seen a LOT is broken wires near the brake lamp switch due to the installation of aftermarket accessories that tie into the brake lamp circuits.

98 ford windstar no dash and tail lights


you have to check all fuses with a test light both fuse boxes under hood and under dash... if good next to look for is the light switch itself... has any radio work been done to the lately... if so alot of times hooked up wrong will blow park fuse as one of the wires to radio is the park voltage to tell radio to dim down some

Tail lights and dash lights keep blowing fuse when you start it


you have a short somewhere, unplug the tail lamps one at a time and see if the fuse still blows. if you disconnect one and the fuse does not blow and everything else works, the problem is in the tail light assembly. if not, the short is most likely in the wiring harness which can be a bit tricky to diagnose. alldata.com/diy offers one year subscriptions to cars with all the repair info and they have excellent wiring schematics. dont forget to try the front marker lamps in addition to the tail lamps.
